Bloody wonderful that's what
Majorly huge in Greece when I was at school. Hate them.
Never really got into The Cure (though i said that about Depeche Mode and love them) but i heart Friday I'm In Love.
Theyre big in Greece arent they? Vasilios, you cant hate all their stuff. You cant hate "A Forest", you cant hate "Lullaby", you cant hate "WCIBY". You just cant.
Most of their stuff I can take or leave but In Between Days is most of the most amazing songs ever written.
I adore The Cure. Robert Smith is a bit of a prick but an undeniable genius. 'Lullaby', 'Cut Here' and 'Just Like Heaven' are just amazing.
If you love Bloc Party and all this current post-punk stuff at the moment I strongly suggest you get the "Boys Dont Cry" album. You'll want to slap Robert a LOT less than one should really stick one on Kele, the po-faced old moaner.
Wow I havent heard this in years. Talk about POP.
Hmmm, they were a great group for me, but pretty much everything post Disintegration is just a bit dull. That said, when they were good, they were fantastic. Primary, Just Like Heaven, The Walk, Killing An Arab, Hanging Garden... Oh, I could go on.
I'm off to play The Head On The Door now.
I was scared to death as a child by the "Lullaby" video.
I love "Burn", it's one of their best/most underrated songs.
Can't believe this is the extent of the PJ love ... Been listening to Mixed Up after about a 10 year (or more) hiatus … Brilliant stuff ...
They are brilliant. And the cornerstone of my angsty student years in the early 90's (with New Order and Depeche Mode)
Robert Smith's ability to write both huge sprawling epics and wonderful sparkly pop classics has my ongoing admiration
Agreed. We need a thread to wallow in their magnificence
I've been slowly discovering them over the years and I'm constantly surprised by how much I adore their music.
For me they peaked around 1985-1987.....the Head On The Door album (with Close to Me and Inbetween Days), then the imperious Standing On A Beach singles collection, followed by the wild and wonderful double album Kiss Me Kiss Me Kiss Me. It felt like Robert Smith's muse was on an unstoppable, giddy roll.

They're a brilliant band and I've been a fan since as long as I can remember. My favourite tracks are Lament, Lullaby, The Walk, and The Exploding Boy.
